Good job, Antagony. Carole Bayer Sager was very popular in the 70s and 80s. Incredibly gorgeous in addition to being so talented.
For those of you who haven't heard the name I think you would be very surprised if you google her. She has won many awards including at least one Oscar and has had numerous nominations for songs that I am sure you will have heard of. Tigress quite rightly points out that she was once married to Burt Bacharach and they wrote many songs together. I if memory serves me correct she also had a relationship with Marvin Hamlisch both professionally and personally.
As for THAT song . . . when it was released I found it the most annoying thing around only later to be eclipsed by "The Birdie Song" . . . strange how time changes your opinions as I quite like it these days. I do still have some taste though as I still hate "The Birdie Song" with a vengeance . . . :D)
I've never heard of her so I would never have guessed it.
I didn't know either the name...or the face...or even the voice, thank goodness. I'm with you there, Antagony....you might have been exonerated of roomateicide!
Congratulations, Antagony...I never would have put that name to that face.
@bahands: As I said to Froggy in the solution thread, I doubt that I would have got it without the 'collaborations' clue. After that it was just a matter of racking my brain for singer/songwriter/collaborations until it came to me.
I didn't mind the lyrics or sentiments of the song, but her voice really grated on me. It was exacerbated by the fact my girlfriend at the time loved it and insisted on playing it repeatedly! Oh and no, we weren't co-habiting then, so it wasn't her trying to tell me something. ;^)
Forgot to say . . . thank you Tigress for pointing out that I am, once more, losing my marbles . . . yes, this should have read 5 of 5 . . . lol
***** CAROLE SAY . . . err . . . BAG . . . I mean SAGER??? *****
OH BUMS!!! You know who I mean . . . her . . .
Just trot off to . . .
. . . where you will find he full series of pictures together with the original image and her bloomin' name . . . lol
Well done Antagony . . . :D)
I was robbed!!! I was just getting my acceptance speech ready to celebrate my 3rd win but thwarted at the last minute . . . lol
I'll go seek out another celeb to annoy you now . . . :D)
PS . . . sorry to duplicate the TOTP clip, but to save time most of this blurb is pre-written and I couldn't be bothered to edit it . . . :D)
Well ain't that a kick in the head?
Well done Antagony! How did you ever think of that?
I kind of do like that song, woman power, kicking out the oaf; I also like Barbra Streisand and Donna Summer's duet "No More Tears (Enough is Enough)" and Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive"; both on You tube of course.

WE HAVE A WINNER . . . :D)
BACK SOON . . . :D)
hahaha heidih, i tried that too, all the way back to the sixties an top of the pops and the oldies....
Oh good, I can stop googling female singers from the 70s now. Good job Antagony!
Congrats, Antagony!!! You definitely have the right answer. I remember when Carole was married to Burt Bacharach and they wrote a lot of songs together. She has collaborated with some other great lyricists too. :-)
Thanks folks. Oddly, I couldn't find the exact image, but there was one similar enough to confirm it. The actual image was undoubtedly snipped from this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lXbmGO9PBvE — a song I've always hated, by the way! :^D
yep found the foto too....never heard off her
congrats antagony.. well played!!
I think Antagony has it right. I'm going with Carol Bayer Sager too!
Antagony, found the photo. Well done.
Ooh, I think I way have got it from Froggy's clue...
Carol Bayer Sager?
Just realized, this says 4 of 5 when in fact, it is pic #5. :-)
I'm with you on this one Heidi.....haven't a clue
If anyone can fool us with the distortions it's Ms Froggy, even on the final photo. Remember the Elvis puzzle, Heidi? :-)))
Unless... maybe Carly Simon, but there needs to be a major change for the final picture. I think I'm only guessing her because she hasn't been guessed yet.
I give up. It's not anyone I recognize.
In an effort to reduce the length of the incorrect list I have removed all the male names . . . at least I think I have . . . so you can safely assume that this is someone of the female gender . . . :D)
I think you may need a bit of help with this one . . . all I am saying is that this is someone in the music industry who has collaborated with many of the incorrect names that you have given . . . :D)
If you haven't come up with the correct answer by 6pm (UK) I will reveal the identity . . . Good Luck . . . :D)
Gosh, I'm lost on this one. Even though it doesn't look like her, I'll guess Loretta Lynn.
Not just a puzzle, but a game as well. See if you can guess who the celebrity is. The face has been distorted and will be made clearer until a correct guess is given or I run out of photos . . . in which case I WIN!!! LOL
I hope to update the pictures at around 1pm and 10pm each day (UK time) and I will pop in from time to time to check on progress . . . have fun
Please feel free to make as many guesses as you want but if you are making multiple guesses at the same time could you please combine them to a single comment. This makes it easier for others to read through them and, more importantly, makes it easier for me to compile the incorrect list . . . thank you . . . :D)
INCORRECT GUESSES SO FAR . . .
